hard starts

Recommended Posts

Hi

My 2003 crf450r usually starts in one try; recently it has been hard starting especially when hot. I've changed the spark plug, check the valve clearance and had the caburetor cleaned but the results the same. Could it be my rings? The bike runs the same but it feels as if its kicking a lot easier.

Mine started doing this after awhile, everything checked out as far as specs. I now give it one twist of the throttle when hot and it fires 1 or 2 kicks. I still use the hot start lever. Try it once.
